What does The Pit think of hypnotism and hypnotherapy? I've tried the free tracks by Roseanna Leaton with some success. Personal experiences, questions, general discussion on hypnotism? Here's the place.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

I really should put that in the OP. It says the gif isn't working though, but I'm not sure if that's because of you or my computer.

Hypnotists = Credit card scammers.

Those who believe otherwise would make good victims for them.

Hypnosis has proved not to exist, separate from willing participants. The sort of deep relaxed state can be very useful however.
We should start calling it "The Fact of Evolution", theory, even though correct, does not work with the ignorant..

Can't hypnotize people into doing things they wouldn't do naturally, you can only influence what they would already do. That being said, let's hope Represent has suicidal thoughts.

It depends on the person. If one resists therapy of any sort, it's not going to be of much help.

My friend was in the audience of a hypnotist at Bamboozle and it was later in the day and he was mad tired. He accidentally got hypnotized, brought up on the stage, and was forced to dry hump another man to "Party Rock Anthem"

He wasn't forced. He wanted to hump that guy.

I'm quite the hypnosis addict. Those self-hypnosis tracks are AMAZING stress relievers. If I come home after a particularly hard day, and nothing else works, I get myself hypnotized. I come out feeling refreshed. Odd thing though, I can only ever get hypnotized when it's a girl hypnotist (regardless of appearance) or a man with a deep Alan Rickman-like voice, and I'm not gay. Also, it really helps if they have a tiny hint of an accent.

how are we defining hypnotism?

stage performers apparently controlling the minds of volunteers?

or the guided meditation that allows people to reflect on certain aspects of their personality?

Just to be clear, a true hypnotic trance is similar to that feeling right before you fall asleep where you can easily be jarred awake, but you're still not entirely conscious of your surroundings. Quite the relaxing feeling.

We talked about this in psych. I think it could be used in a good way to help people, but i don't think it should be used for entertainment. That's how it gets a bad reputation.

My experiences with hypnotherapy have been absolutely fantastic. I truly believe in its power. The first time i was hypnotized to fight my depression, i walked out a new person. it fascinates me to no end.

Here's my story.

I've had major depression for 4 1/2 years. It was one of the hardest things i've ever faced in my life. Every day I've felt like death. I tried CBT. Didn't work. I tried counselling. Didn't work after a year of counselling. Tried meds. Made me feel worse and i was so ill i couldn't work.

But after 1 hypnotherapy session, i felt so incredible i would've died happy on that day. I hadn't felt so at peace with myself in years. I have written down my accounts of being under hypnosis and what i remember seeing.

Does the pit want to hear the full thing?

Hypnotherapy is incredibly useful. It can be used to get rid of phobias, addictions, anxiety disorders, depression, even weight loss.

But hypnosis only helps you if you allow it to help you.

For me, it was very expensive. It was £35 an hour. But it was part of a 5- star luxury business complex.

Even though it was expensive, it was worth ever freaking penny.

I was thinking more along the lines of American pricing, but thanks I can just convert that. That puts me at around $55 an hour. I'm hoping that I can manage to find a smaller-run firm where hypnotherapy is used or even a college where they're doing research on it, preferably the latter because it'd more than likely be free. Worse comes to worse, I could always just buy the mp3's online.

MP3's are OK. But in my experience, nothing beats chatting to a therapist one-to-one for an hour or two before hypnosis. Just for your therapist to get an idea of were the problems lie and to establish trust with each other. Building a relationship with the therapist makes the hypnosis even more effective.

Go for that if its possible.

Of course it doesn't help people who don't want help. Hypnotherapy is a tried and true method that works for people who WANT to get better. In fact the whole 'wanting to get better' idea applies to any psychological treatment. wanting to get better will always benefit.

I've seen people become hypnotized. It's hilarious (it was at a show at school one year)

I tried to get hypnotized with them, but it didn't work on me
